In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at http://www.shihtzurescuemn.org/adopt.html to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption.  An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section.  If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered.  Please do not request a phone call.  A personal phone call will only be made when an adoption application has been submitted and the foster parent wishes to consider the application.  Thank you!

Meet 4 year old Puchis! A playful, fun-loving little guy who will warm your heart.  Puchis (pronounced like Poochy) arrived in rescue in August, blind from juvenile cataracts and detached retinas. The rescue immediately sought specialty care in the hopes that perhaps his eyesight could be restored.  But sadly there was nothing that could be done for him, and the ophthalmologist recommended that his eyes be removed to eliminate the pain he was experiencing and to ensure no future infection.  He is now a happy and healthy guy ready for a forever home.

Puchis is very social and bonds quickly to those he is with.  Although blind, he does not let this challenge stop him from interacting with people and animals.  He is very friendly and enjoys life to the fullest, exploring his back yard, playing with toys, and interacting with his foster Shih Tzu siblings.  He adapts well to change and would thrive in a family that is willing to carefully include him in their activities. 

Puchis has an outgoing personality and would do best with someone home most of the day, or with a compatible canine companion to keep him company.  He has done well with young children, but we feel older children would be a better fit because of his uniqueness and lack of sight.  He would love a fenced yard so he can safely roam free, but he also enjoys daily walks and does well walking on a leash.  Puchis can handle a few steps up and down on his own, if they are minimal, and he is housebroken and crate trained.

Due to his blindness, we recommend and encourage people to allow Puchis to approach them first.  If you call his name, he will tentatively come to you, but after he gets to know you, he easily recognizes your voice and happily engages with you in every possible way.  His loss of sight has made him cautious of things near his eyes and hind end - regular grooming is helping him to overcome this. He has made great progress, yet it is an area he will need some patience with.

Puchis is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm preventative. His adoption fee is $370.00 plus a $27.84 sales tax, for a total of $397.84. His foster parents would like his adopters to live within a reasonable driving distance of the Twin Cities and encourage them to attend the annual Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion in the fall.

To meet Puchis, please complete an adoption application. Or you can also see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the first Saturday of every month."
